The theme of this year’s fund raising campaign is children with cancer and the challenges faced by survivors of childhood cancer in later life.
Speaking after the show, the Chairman of ‘Kom op tegen kanker’, the VRT weatherman Frank De Boosere, said that he was pleased with the amount raised so far.
However, this is just the beginning and much more is expected to be raised during the campaign.
The show featured interviews with children that are facing or have faced life with cancer. There was also music from well-known Flemish artists such as Axelle Red, Bent Van Looy, Johan Verminnen and Koen Wauters.
